About Vaida Siga or Harvey Nauffts

Owners have lived and worked in the area since the 1960's and are well versed in the history and natural history of the area.

Vaida Siga or Harvey Nauffts purchased this house in 2002

Why Vaida Siga or Harvey Nauffts chose Tofino

Easy access to all the wild west coast has to offer but allows quiet respite in a relaxed family friendly setting. Outdoor showers to rinse off the sand and salt from your surf gear, bike or beach toys. Cook up local seafood and produce in the bright, spacious full kitchen.

What makes this house unique

Large private yard with picnic table and BBQ to enjoy sunny summer evening meals. Child and pet friendly so the whole family can enjoy the west coast surf and beaches. Assistance in selecting sightseeing tours, eco-adventures, whale watching, fishing charters or just choosing a bike or hike to enjoy for the day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Harvey

I just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with your place this weekend. Given that we are new to the Island and don't know anything about the West Coast, it was perfect and you were a wonderful host. You should have a guest book in each place so we could leave you a nice comment because it would have been well deserved. Although I had to leave to return to work, I wanted to thank you for working something out so that Gilles and the kids could stay for a couple more days. It was a real treat, especially since it is probably the only vacation time he will have with the kids all summer so a big Thank You for that wonderful opportunity.

We will continue to keep you on our list of favorite places to stay.

Thanks again for the lovely stay.

Excellent family Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. This rental is well set up with all the essentials for a great holiday( Dishes,laundry,towels,etc.) We could tell the places have been well thought out. Also they are bright, clean and spacious. Our kids had lots of room to play outside as well. The Owners were very friendly and helpful we were well taken care of. The location was nice and close to all the beaches only a short drive each day. It is a relaxing place. It felt like a home away from home.

We had an amazing week here. The property was perfect for us, clean and comfortable and a great base from which to explore the surrounding area.It is really well positioned for hikes, beach and boat trips, in Ucluelet and up to Tofino and a lovely place to return to and relax, at the end of each day.

The owners were available when needed, interesting and helpful about the local area and extremely kind, especially towards our young children.It was a pleasure to meet you Harvey and Vaida. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Owner's Response: We enjoy sharing knowledge of this area, especially with such appreciative guests. These guests enjoyed a wildlife cruise in Barclay Sound and a soak in the hotsprings on their trip to Hotsprings Cove They were busy every day of their stay, walking the trails from the unit to all the beaches in the area, walking the Wild Pacific Trail to the lighthouse, and exploring the towns of Tofino and Ucluelet. It is a pleasure to host such wonderful, energetic and interested guests.
